BOULDER, Colo. (AP) - A University of Colorado student who was shot by Boulder police during a standoff has been charged with four felony counts of menacing.

The Daily Camera reports (https://bit.ly/1yxgelB ) 23-year-old Coleman Stewart made his first court appearance Friday since being shot multiple times May 30. He spent 12 days in a hospital after he allegedly pointed a pellet gun at officers through the door of his home.

Authorities say the standoff happened after Stewart refused to pay for a cab. The driver called police, and Stewart ran into his apartment, where officers say he pointed a gun at them, prompting them to open fire.

Stewart also is charged with resisting arrest, obstructing a peace officer and theft of less than $50.

His arraignment is set for Aug. 22.
